About the Author

George Eliot (1819-1880), whose real name was Mary Ann Evans Cross, left school at the age of sixteen and embarked on a program of independent study to further her intellectual growth before becoming one of the leading novelists of the Victorian era. Her seven novels also include The Mill on the Floss, Adam Bede, and Silas Marner.
Rebecca Mead is a staff writer at the New Yorker. She lives in New York.

Reviews

""Middlemarch," the magnificent book which with all its imperfections is one of the few English novels written for grown-up people."
--Virginia Woolf
"The most profound, wise and absorbing of English novels . . . and, above all, truthful and forgiving about human behaviour."
--Hermione Lee
"No Victorian novel approaches "Middlemarch" in its width of reference, its intellectual power, or the imperturbable spaciousness of its narrative...I doubt if any Victorian novelist has as much to teach the modern novelists as George Eliot...No writer has ever represented the ambiguities of moral choice so fully."
--V. S. Pritchett
"Middlemarch is probably the greatest English novel."
--Julian Barnes
"It is possible to argue that Middlemarch is the greatest English novel."
--A. S. Byatt

"Certainly the greatest [English] novel."
--Martin Amis
